I’m very proud and excited to be part of the Chorlton Art Market Hub, where I’ve just launched the Mark Wallis Design stall. Selected framed art prints of my work are now available exclusively here, along with Spring and Easter greetings cards. CAM Hub is an independent small business in south Manchester, UK which has fought against corporate red tape to defend it’s patch in a richly diverse town full of creativity and character. If you’re in the area, and feel like brightening up your walls this spring, pop in and check out the wide range of wonderful arts and crafts and cards. There’s also some very colourful vintage clothing for summer.

This is Alderley Edge in Cheshire, England. It’s a place steeped in myth and legend, inspiring Lewis Carroll’s Cheshire Cat and Alan Garner’s series of spooky children’s folk tales, such as The Owl Service. King Arthur is supposed to have met Merlin the Wizard here, and tucked under The Edge is an ancient Wishing Well, with Merlin’s face carved into the rock.
Giant brightly coloured eggs are part of the Action for Children Big Egg Hunt, which stopped off to display these beauties at Manchester’s Exchange Square. The tour has gone down to London and you can find out more here www.thebigegghunt.co.uk
The Rites of Spring, celebrated by our earliest ancestors, worshipping Mother Nature. Most Easter rituals have been imported from their Pagan predecessors, such as the ancient fertility symbols of the egg and the hare, or rabbit. It’s as old as early man first recognising the significance of the change in season and the passing of winter. Easter has been celebrated for less than 2000 years, although chocolate doesn’t appear in the Bible, I’m sure it will do soon!
